Editorial: Liberal judges support abortion

Liberal, activist judges continue to enact new laws to make it easier to kill unborn babies in America.

In April, U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs ruled Missouri’s laws setting health and safety standards for abortion clinics are probably “unconstitutional.” Sachs quoted the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which said states cannot place restrictions that create an “undue burden” on women.

That’s nowhere in the U.S. Constitution.

And what about the “undue burden” placed on unborn children who are killed in their mothers’ womb?

And are abortion clinics exempt from state health and safety standards just because liberal judges don’t want to stop or even slow down the killing of these babies?

Oklahoma recently passed a law stating that abortionist had to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of an abortion clinic so that when they botch an abortion, they can rush the woman and her baby to a nearby hospital. Thanks to the activist, liberal Oklahoma Supreme Court, that common sense law was overturned.

Missouri’s attorney general will appeal the ruling.

Joe Ortwerth, executive director of the Missouri Family Policy Council, said the ruling has emboldened Planned Parenthood. “Judge Sachs has demonstrated through this ruling his callous and cavalier disregard for the health of women who find themselves at the mercy of slipshod abortionists,” he said. “The laws struck down by Judge Sachs have been on the books for three decades in our state, and are consistent with reputable medical standards for outpatient surgical facilities.  Missouri currently has only one full-time abortion clinic that can meet those safety standards.  Now, we will see four new abortion clinics open in our state where the operators will have no obligation to provide responsible care to women who will often be victimized by unsafe and unsterile procedures.”

The blood of these unborn children are on the hands of these judges.
